Superintendent Randal Bassett says it's so popular, juniors are asking if they could have the same ceremony next year.

Cologne, Germany has a new public square exhibit that's aimed at explaining the Coronavirus pandemic to kids.

It's based on a book called "Why is Everyone Staying at Home?" The book's pages have been blown up to the size of a large poster and each page is attached to a fountain plate in the square. The fountain is so big, it's possible for kids to see it and socially distance.
